Three Energy Futures – Part 1 – Crude Oil

coin operated binoculars at a observation point

For the next three posts, we’re going to take a deep look into the future on three commodities important to us here in GR&A: Oil, Natural Gas and Electric Power. The recipe for each section will be one part current events, one part analysis and a pinch of the ever important speculation (it’s kinda like salt, but for forecasters. Add it to taste).

In the crude section, we will discuss OPEC’s market-share capture strategy.  In the gas section, we will touch on how the link between oil and gas will strengthen.  In the power section, we will highlight a specific regulatory development in California that will shed some light on the future of the industry.

File Under: Bearish Oil and Basketball

I got to chat again with Susan Li – one of my favorite anchors – last night as I appeared on CNBC Asia to talk all things oil. We covered Iran, inventories, Saudi, currencies and more, before they addressed the big question: how was Kentucky dealing with the NCAA loss? Hark, click on the below mugshot to launch to the clip (the appearance was also incorporated into this article):

File Under: The Morning After The Night Before

Thursday night in the US translated to a Friday morning appearance on CNBC Squawk Box in Asia, and one which was a lot of fun, as anchor Susan Li heckled me for not being able to vote for Mitch McConnell given my non-status as a US citizen. Hark, click on the below mugshot to launch to the serious part of the interview.  When it starts, I am responding to Susan’s suggestion that OPEC must be smoking something to think prices in 2020 could be $110:

File Under: Taking a ‘Bath’…

This morning’s appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box was pretty hilarious as Joe tried to coax an American accent out of me. The best he got was what my children chide me for saying… ‘bath’ and ‘banana’ (I pronounce them ‘barth and banarnar’). Unfortunately the clip below is just the serious part of the interview, although there was a lot to cover re OPEC as crude prices take a ‘bath’ once more…

File Under: Rantastic!

This morning’s appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box came after a huge overnight move in crude to the lows of the year, giving lots to discuss. Hark, click on the below mugshot to launch to part of today’s interview. To hear more of my ranting, you can also listen to an interview here that I did for the ETF store this week. It’s over 20 minutes long, and covers a lot of ground, from the economy to emissions to oil to natural gas to renewables. Rantastic!
